Before I post this I want to point out that I read an article awhile back that says that the State of California makes almost a billion dollars a year taxing companies that produce porn. This state is moronic. We are in a financial straglehold and now someone is goint try and push this revenue stream out of our state as well. Unfreakinbelievable.

Two adult film companies fined for allowing unprotected sex on movie set

(09-17) 06:57 PDT LOS ANGELES (AP) --

California officials fined two adult film companies more than $30,000 each for allowing actors to perform without using condoms, the first time the state has taken such action.

The fines against Evasive Angles and TTB Productions follow an investigation into a complaint filed by a porn industry worker. The companies have 15 days to appeal the decision Wednesday by the state Division of Occupational Health and Safety.

Susan Gard, agency spokeswoman, said the companies violated California law when actors performed sex scenes without using condoms. She said state law requires employers to protect workers who are exposed to blood or bodily fluids on the job.

"Any bodily fluid is considered infectious," she said. "That means barrier equipment must be used."

Four actors were diagnosed earlier this year with HIV, prompting state officials to say they would investigate whether state laws were being followed. Officials at Evasive Angles and TTB Productions could not immediately be reached for comment; calls to them went unanswered early Friday.

The companies were also cited for not notifying authorities about actors who contracted HIV on the job, officials said.

It is a widely held belief among adult film producers that condom use hurts profits because customers would rather see unprotected sex. However, some large adult film production companies require actors to use condoms.

I wonder what the split on the fine was?

Would contracting an STD, while performing in a porn, be considered Workers Comp?

Is there a Union for porn industry workers? If not, there's should be. The idea of a safe-sex requirment is admirable, but it should not be ligislated by the state government. This is the sort of thing a Union should impose.

the only thing about midgets is that my surefire way of getting rid of an unwanted baby doesn't work, because they aren't tall enough to ride rollercoasters

Dude, easy solution. Buy a male one on the black market.

I wonder what a picket line would look like, or better yet, what would they do while on strike?
